The objective of this regular session is to examine current hot issues in the studies of capitalism and to make sense of modern manifestation of comparative sociology in understanding processes of economic, social, and cultural development in former Soviet Union (fSU) societies after the demise of the USSR. On the basis of detailed theoretical and empirical analysis of everyday life practices the participants in the session will identify the patterns and underlying causes of success and failure in capitalism evolvement in the Newly Independent States of Eurasia. We encourage to apply those scholars who are interested in the following themes:

  • comparative study of market institutions in fSU;
  • comparative study of everyday life in countries of the fSU;
  • trajectories of the educational systems;
  • non-governmental and non-corporate sectors of societies;
  • the phenomenon of poverty;
  • comparative research in issues of culture.

The overall objective of the project is to highlight the role of comparative sociology in studying reality of the former Soviet countries of Eurasia, as well as to develop an advanced understanding of theoretical approaches to capitalism of the 21st century.
